Happy New Year!

The voting links for the best articles of last month are up so please take a moment to vote for the best articles of December 2013.

2014 is seeing some major changes in the monthly competition, and while we're still finalising the details we're aiming to make the whole process smoother, faster, and more representative. So many amazing articles, so many seriously talented authors, so we want to make sure we find the best of the best each month and give them their spotlight.

We're also looking to extend our "Learn" series so take a moment to vote in this weeks straw poll (again, homepage) so we can ensure we get the most popular topics queued up.

...and for those who wish they could get their bug fixes to authors a little easier: we've got a wonderful surprise coming.

cheers,
Chris Maunder
